Jim Le Fevre, animator

  • National Maritime Museum

The National Maritime Museum Art&Design Club’s Masterclass with Jim Le Fevre was a fun, informative and very productive introduction to animation.

Jim started with a captivating talk about himself, his route into animation and the types of projects he works on then outlined the history of animation and the process of making an animated advert. He then introduced the task: making “phonotropes”, Jim’s patented 3D variation of the zoetrope technique using record decks.

Each Club member created several designs, and they took it in turns to test them, using a camera linked to a screen. They improved on their creations through trial and error and produced final animations that were really impressive.
